In partnership with the Young Entrepreneur Council (YEC), an organization made up of America’s top young entrepreneurs, Gen Y Capital Partners works as an early stage venture accelerator for Generation Y, by Generation Y. We intend to invest in early stage companies across multiple verticals. In addition to capital investment, we combine the benefits of Income Based Repayment (“IBR”), academic partnerships and a support network of the most successful young entrepreneurs in the country, to remove many of the barriers young entrepreneurs face in creating new businesses and jobs for themselves and their peers. Our goal is to create a new, scalable 360 degree approach to investing in our nation’s youth. Highlights of our strategy include:
We expect to invest in as many as 100 startups over the next 5 years and several hundred over the next decade. With the continued support of government reforms and academia, we expect to scale in the next 24 months, and will begin to roll out incubator programs on college campuses across the United States.
